Pico de las Nieves, Gran Canaria

4.7
Pico de las Nieves is the highest peak on the island of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. Its height is 1,949 metres (6,394 ft) above sea level. It is of volcanic origin (stratovolcano). On its slopes, Canary Islands Pine was reintroduced in the 1950s.
Traditionally, Pico de las Nieves has been considered the highest peak on the island of Gran Canaria; however, this is uncertain since Morro de la Agujereada stands at 1,956 metres (6,417 ft), which would make it higher than Pico de las Nieves. The two mountains stand next to each other.


Gran Canaria has the highest elevation of the province of Las Palmas and the third highest in the Canary Islands. Of the other Canary Islands, only Tenerife and La Palma have higher peaks.

  • Las pPalmas is a wonderful city but the island has many beautiful places that you can hardly find yourself, our vacation was wonderful thanks to the man we met on the beach las canteras Mr. kristofer....  more »
  • The view is great and the top is 3 minutes hike up from the car park, you can easily go with young kids. The metal barier on the top is not very safe, so be careful with the young ones! On the car...  more »

  • such an amazing view over here. The roads tho.. Prepare for some holy turns..
  • Stunning few above the clouds. I got lucky with clear weather that enabled me to see down as well. Later on clouds surrended the mountain and blocked the most of view. Would love to have chance to spend more time over there hiking and discover surroundings. To go up there I used rental car and I found it quite challenging to drive up there. Average speed was around 20 kmh and barely touched the 3rd gear. Watch out for big cars when going up and down.
